The manual says it can be in Access Mode (aka hotspot) or you can join it to your WiFi network. So the IP depends on how you connect it. There is no information on the port used, you have to ask Celestron or find it from another source.

Follow PyINDI tutorial and then issue commands to the mount, there are Standard Properties to send motion/slew commands to mounts.

So it's Mount


> WiFi ----> INDI server running mount driver ----> PyINDI client code

Once you run INDI server with the mount driver, eg.
indiserver -v indi_celestron_gps

You can use Python to query properties and send commands. Before you connect to the mount, you need to set the conection switch to Ethernet and then fill in the required IP address and port of the WiFi mount and connect. More properties will be defined once the mount is connected, then you can use python to control it.

You need to use a client like KStars to connect to Raspberry pi. INDI server must be running on Raspberry PI with the celestron driver. From KStars, you connect to INDI and from INDI Control Panel, you make these changes.

Then try to use the INDI Celestron driver but under connections select "Ethernet" instead of "Serial" and put the IP address and port of the mount (assuming it's on WiFi)

Guiding does not require streaming and actually does not use streaming at all. I don't know how to interface with webcams under Mac, so if someone with programming knowledge can add an interface to support this, then we'll happily incorporate it in INDI. Don't know what's the equivalent, if any, is available on Mac.
